Reviewed 2 January 2012

This property is one of the best bearing the 4S name. The grounds are pristine and the service impeccable. The pools are large, clean and heated, even in December. The spa treatments were very good, including our first hammam.

The only downsides were the restaurants which were only above average and not worth the price. The exception to this were the breakfast and lunch buffets which were very good. Fortunately most days we left the property for dinner. Also, try to venture out from the hotel recommendations. They, not surprisingly, try to recommend the same 4-5 restaurants--and there are literally dozens of great places to eat--talk to locals or check with other tourists.

Try one the the "pure living" tours. They can be set-up at the concierge and offer 1-of-a-kind and exclusive experiences. We visited a Berber village, toured their homes, visited their school and cooked a tajine.

We spent 5 nights in 4S Marrakech as a pre-Christmas break. The travelling party included 2 adults and 2 small children. We got upgraded to Deluxe Suite due to some issues with the booking, which provided for an excellent start even before we arrived.

1. Location & grounds
The hotel is based west of the Medina and it takes ~3-5min to reach the walls by car, probably 20min+ walk so it's not exactly central and there is not much around the hotel to see. May not be ideal if you travel with small kids and hope to walk straight into where all the action is but it takes virtually no time to get a taxi plus in the evenings, the hotel offers courtesy rides to a venue of your choice (great for dinner transport). The hotel itself is brand new with decor and grounds trimmed to an excellent standard. The building(s) are max 3-floors and spreads wide into the gardens where there are several facilities - pools, lunchtime restaurant, kids club etc. The gardens are beautiful with lots of plants and decorations to explore
2. Reception and service
4S Marrakech gets the highest marks. All the staff, without exception, is very helpful, professional and keen to serve (without overdoing it). This goes for the reception staff through concierge (Jinan was particularly helpful there), restaurant staff, kids club, youngsters centre, room service, valet... everyone. The whole family was consistently referred to by our name, kids on first-name basis. Despite the hotel running for only a few months, everything was outstanding by general standards and there were only rare occassions where we could think of a slight improvement within the 4S standards. Greatly impressed nevertheless.
3. Room
The suite was excellent - 4-poster bed, fold-out sofa bed in the living room and a cot in the master bedroom provided for quality sleep. All rooms generously sized, great terrace overlooking the gardens with Atlas mountains on the horizon, plenty of storage and quality throughout (it's 4S after all!), including L'Occitane toiletries. Bose multimedia system in the living room was a nice enhancer (though UK DVDs sometimes played in faded colours due to the region issue). The only issue to point out in the room was the noisy LG DVD player in the master bedroom emitting high-pitch noise when switched off - we had to unplug it from power to stop it.
4. Food
To start with, refreshments and sweets provided for kids on arrival in the room were a great welcome. Daily supply of fresh fruit and evening light snack added to the feeling of getting excellent treatment. The evening snacks were so delicious that we started really looking forward to them, before heading out for the proper dinner. Out of the hotel dining facilities, aside from the daily breakfast, we only tried the evening restaurant Solano (twice) as the other venue is not open yet. Back to breakfast: fruit, pastries and healthy breakfast bufet coupled with made-to-order omelettes did a good job every day. Cheese selection and salamis/ham were provided on some days but we usually had to ask for them as they were not on display - no issue at all, though wondered why not offer upfront (perhaps because it's less healthy than what's on display:). Nothing was an issue - coffees made to order, bowl of raspberries... without any extra charges. Everything is very children friendly - always provided with kids cutlery, high chair and got the "bib cleaning service" automatically offered at the end. Great start of the day. Dinners: Great menu offering a combination of modern international and Moroccan dishes. Had 3-course dinner including a glass of wine twice, which came to £100 (kids under 5 eat free btw), which we found reasonable given the food quality, service provided and 4S brand. Definitely plan to eat here on one evening, at least. We ate out on 3 evenings - Mamounia Moroccan, Maison Arabe and Dar Yacout. 4S definitely fully comparable in terms of dining experience (perhaps just slightly behind Mamounia which was the top experience but double the price) though the environment and decor, whilst great in themselves, were somewhat behind the other places, also due to the lack of entertainment. However, 4S provides for the complimentary arrival in style to any dining destination (courtesy car - they have Range Rovers, S Class Merc and Merc vans) Btw, don't go to Dar Yacout with children, they are awkward around them, don't have high chairs and there is no menu as there is one set of courses for all (kids not charged, to add silver lining).
5. Facilities
Unfortunately did not have a chance to try out much around the hotel as we spent most of the time outside. Outdoor pools looked very inviting, one being heated so could have been a nice swim. Young adult centre provided good entertainment even for our little ones - mainly around the pool table with the staff helpful enough to occassionaly facilitate the game and entertaining one of the kids when I had my hands full with the other one. The centre was well equipped with video games, DVD collection with big-screen "cinema" and outdoor chill-out and basketball area. The kids club, was similarly positive experience though closing at 5pm meant that we only tried it once, on our last day, as pre-dinner time had to be spent in young adult centre. Perhaps worth extending the kids club opening hours there to cover for pre-dinner time so that younger children can be taken somewhere by the parents without potentially distracting others in the more grown-up centre (we had no issues but can imagine so if it gets more busy with younger guests).

Summary: Really impressed. Five stars throughout. Great care taken of the kids. Go for it.

This was one of the best hotels I have ever visited. The staff are incredibly courteous and helpful and genuinely seemed to care about their work. The rooms are beautifully decorated and comfortable. For a first time visitor to Morocco, the environment of Marrakech can be overwhelming. Staying at the Four Seasons allows instant relaxation once inside the hotel gates. It is truly an oasis.

This fairly new property has all the wonderful Four Seasons touches -- great bathrooms, large rooms and excellent service. After a day spent shopping in the souks or sightseeing, it was so relaxing to come back to this oasis. It's a short taxi ride to the Medina yet far enough away from all the hustle and bustle.
The grounds and pool are lovely -- a pool just for adults and one for families. The Kids program looked fantastic (I didn't have children with me). The fitness center has two rooms -- one for cardio and one for weights - a nice touch.
The food was delicious -- Italian food at Solano was a nice change after eating Moroccan cuisine for several days (and they have tagines on their menu). Since it was November, we were able to have breakfast outside every morning.
All in all a wonderful resort to spend time.

This is a lovely property, as you would expect from the Four Seasons. We arrived at night, which was lovely as they had lights on the palm trees along the drive. It was quite a chilly night but there was a lovely log fire alight in Reception. The rooms are really spacious with a walk in dressing room and lovely large bathroom. The bath was one of the best I have ever experience, really deep but didn't take long to fill. The beds were beautiful and quality of the linen exceptional. All rooms have a balcony with a couple of chairs and table and a cute little day bed area. One of the best things are the swimming pools - there is a large adult only one and also a large family pool, far enough away from each other to be peaceful. The spa was a welcome relief after sightseeing in the hectic Medina, which is only a short 10 minute taxi journey from the hotel. They also have a great kids club and dedicated pool just for this secure area.

Room Tip: All the lead in rooms are lovely and spacious just depends on which floor you prefer. For more space...

We are just back from a weekend in the FS Marrakech! We had a truly great relaxing break. The children thought they were famous as all the staff were on first name terms with them which they really loved. The kids club was second to none and the kids had a great time there begging to go back all the time. I had two slight problems during my stay firstly our room wasn't cleaned on the first day so when I returned at 5 to see it hadn't been done I was rather disappointed however they were quick to come and do it and brought us some complimentary drinks and everyone from the duty manager to the head of housekeeping called to apologies. Secondly I had to request a wine glass three time first 2 times I got brought various different items!! Overall though it was a very relaxing break which I really enjoyed and I would highly recommend this hotel especially if your travelling with children! They will be treated like royalty during their stay!
